Closing Date: 22 July 2021

Vital Xposure

Location: London / Remote



The word 'Wellspring' in white letters on a black background.

We are seeking London-based disabled, d/Deaf and Neurodivergent playwrights and script writers to join Wellspring, a new professional development programme.

Participants will take part in an intensive course of creative writing; covering character, plot devices and development, tools of inspiration, language, rhythms of narrative and other technical skills essential to writing a script.

The sessions will be facilitated by Alex Bulmer, Cheryl Martin, Sophie Woolley and Vici Wreford – Sinnott, who will frame the sessions with an explicitly political aim of creating a new vanguard in disabled writing.

The deadline for applications is Thursday 22 July 2021.

You don’t have to have written a play before, though you are welcome if you have. All you need is a passion for the world you live in and a curiosity for what words and stories might be within you.

Wellspring is delivered in partnership with Paines Plough, the Bush Theatre and Theatre503, and is funded by City Bridge Trust.

You can find further information and details how to apply on Vital Xposure’s website.
